Don't know if you're all ready for this, but here goes.

The best view of the interior of the Assyrian Court, which stood just north of where the television mast now is.

And a detail, where you can just make out an arch that leads out the back - and to the ladies.

Well spotted Will, and from the English Heritage site I think, no?

I was first put onto this by Steve Grindlay.

On 11 Apr 2008 - Falkor said (at the beginning of this thread) :
has anyone seen this photo showing a somewhat rural Anerley Hill from about 1852 looking up towards the Crystal Palace--under construction--with the skeleton of Wilde's south tower? In the foreground is a pub called The Rising Sun close to the camera (detail). I'm just trying to guage exactly how rare this photo is... I know it belongs to the Crystal Palace Museum.

Found a picture of the water tower being built, it was on one of my hard drives. I have no idea where I got it from.

Think a lot of bother could have been prevented some how . . .
